Tornado Shelter Designed to Withstand EF-5 Category Tornado

Speed Fab-Crete's precast concrete wall building system was selected for construction of the new Emory, Texas Community Center and Tornado Shelter, northeast of Dallas. Per FEMA specifications, the building was designed with 8-inch thick precast concrete walls to withstand a tornado in the EF-5 category, or maximum winds of 250 miles per hour.

 

Specialty Building with Precast Panels

The ABC and FOX network affiliates in Dallas-Fort Worth used the building system to build twin transmitter facilities for the emerging High Definition Television requirements of the 21st Century! Owners' design criteria required roof resistance to falling chunks of ice from the transmitter tower.  American Airlines used the building system to form the seven-story walls of a mammoth maintenance hanger at Alliance Airport in Texas. Spanning the length of four football fields, the building accommodates seven wide-body jet planes for servicing at the same time!
